digitalmars.D.learn - Problems with new DMD

reply Charma <Motoko_Kusanagi web.de> writes:
Hello,
I am into D for many weeks now. I started with dmd 1.010 and never 
thought about updating into the newest version. So now i have the 
problem that my programs don't want to compile. The most basic commands 
cause problems... e.g. I can't compile:

char[] testText = "Hello world!";

It always cauzes me the error:
Error: cannot implicitly convert expression ("Hello world!") of type 
invariant char[12u] to char[]

if I type char[12], it does work but it's no longer changeable, so i get 
errors in other points when i try to change the text in testText...

Anyone an idea what the hell this is about?!?
Thanks & sorry for my engrish :)

You're using 2.0, with its new const semantics. It's fairly experimental, I suggest sticking with the latest 1.0 version: http://www.digitalmars.com/d/1.0/changelog.html Read http://www.digitalmars.com/d/final-const-invariant.html and http://www.digitalmars.com/d/const.html to understand what's going on. -- Remove ".doesnotlike.spam" from the mail address.

Oh thank you, i confused the experimental 2-alpha versions with the "normal" ones... THanks for the quick help!

 I really think D 1.0 should be the default page, instead of 2.0.
 Currently it's a bit confusing.
 

I strongly agree on this!

I strongly agree as well. Experimental, unfinished products should not be the default on the front page.

Also in agreement. I love experimental software, but for a beginner it 
is hopelessly confusing.
